20 Times Michael Scott Was Actually You In College

"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. -Wayne Gretzky" -Michael Scott

20 Times Michael Scott Was Actually You In College

1. When the cops show up to your first frat party

2. When you're forced to work with a partner for the first time since 9th grade and suddenly you regret your resting bitch face and tendency to doze off in class

3. When you walk into your 8am after a weekend of festivities, that you may or may not still be paying the price for, and are greeted with a pop quiz

4. When you're sitting in class taking notes for your test next week and you might as well be writing in Chinese

Or studying Chinese

Or anything but what your test is actually on

5. When the girl you bought a drink for in exchange for her number still hasn't returned your texts

6. When you haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks and your body is now immune to any normally caffeinated beverage

7. When you get a new blackboard notification and know the rest of your day is about to be ruined

8. When you go to office hours at the end of the semester to ask for a crash course from your professor before your final next week

9. When it's 10:30 and you're working on a paper that's due at midnight and your caffeine high crashed 45 minutes ago

10. When you're forced to eat at the dining hall for every meal because you're too broke for real food

11. When you get an email from your professor expecting class to be cancelled but it's just a homework reminder

12. When you're 3/4 of the way through the semester and realize the only way to retain your remaining sanity is with the help of a dog

Or a cat

Or any animal in general

13. Walking into your lecture hall to present in front of 150+ kids and you've looked over your talking points twice

14. When you spend 3 hours watching videos on Facebook and only have 4 paragraphs of your paper written by 2am

15. When you decide to wing it on a test and somehow still clutch a C+

16. When it's been a rough week and the only antidote is to party away your sadness

17. When you email a professor about an urgent issue and get "plz refer to my syllabus -sent from iPhone" back four days later

18. When the smartass who raises their hand and answers all the rhetorical questions during the lecture gets corrected by the professor

19. When your professor has an attendance policy

20. When you're overly optimistic during advising and schedule 8ams

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
